Stellantis will push for a Europe-only electric car strategy for every new Peugeot launched in 2030, while retaining combustion engines for international markets. The European Union is pushing for an end to the internal combustion engine by 2035. However, Peugeot’s plan is five years ahead of the deadline. Under its brand portfolio which includes Vauxhall/Opel, DS, and Alfa Romeo, Stellantis is targeting battery or hybrid sales to reach 70 percent for Europe and 40 percent for the U.S. by 2030.
Stellantis is planning to switch to a fully optimized electric vehicle platform by 2025. Although the new platform will be built around an electric drivetrain it will still retain the modularity to house an internal combustion engine. Peugeot’s existing lineup is already shifting to electrified, plugin hybrid or fully electric which accounts for 70-percent of models.
The next-generation 3008 will shift towards a fully electric offering and will continue to offer electrified combustion engine variants.
